I cannot wait to be able to see this movie again! I’ve already seen it three times but I need to buy it and watch it until I have it memorized like I do the rest of the movies.
Yeah, it may be kind of annoying to watch it with me.
Captain Marvel hit theaters back in March and astounded audiences with the story of Carol Danvers, an Air Force pilot who learns her origin may not be what she thinks. Taking place in the 1990s, Danvers, known as Vers in her new life as a member of Starforce, runs into Nick Fury after she ends up on Earth, unaware of her past.
Carol’s powers are much stronger than she knows, but it’s not as simple as just learning how to use them. Learning who to trust while helping fight the Skrulls, Carol regains memories and in the end, S.H.I.E.L.D.’s Avengers Initiative is born.
The movie speeds along with spectacular special effects, a compelling story line, a good cast and the answer everyone wants to know: what happened to Fury’s eye?
Based on the beloved Marvel comic-book series, first published in 1967, “Captain Marvel” stars Academy Award® winner Brie Larson (“Room,” “Kong: Skull Island”) as Carol Danvers/Captain Marvel, Samuel L. Jackson (Marvel Studios’ “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” “The Hateful Eight”) as Nick Fury, Ben Mendelsohn (“Rogue One: A Star Wars Story,” “Mississippi Grind”) as Talos, with Annette Bening (“American Beauty,” “20th Century Women”) as Supreme Intelligence, with Clark Gregg (“Marvel’s The Avengers,” “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”) as Agent Coulson and Jude Law (“Sherlock Holmes,” “Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald”) as Yon-Rogg.
The film also includes a talented supporting cast that features Djimon Hounsou(“Blood Diamond,” “Guardians of the Galaxy”) as Korath, Lee Pace (“The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey,” “Guardians of the Galaxy”) as Ronan, Lashana Lynch (“Bulletproof,” “Brotherhood”) as Maria Rambeau, Gemma Chan (“Crazy Rich Asians,” “Humans”) as Minn-Erva, Rune Temte (“Eddie the Eagle,” “The Last Kingdom”) as Bron-Char, Algenis Perez Soto (“Sugar,” “Isolated Victim”) as Att-Lass, Mckenna Grace (“Gifted,” “I, Tonya”) as Young Carol Danvers and Akira Akbar (“Grey’s Anatomy”) as Monica Rambeau.
